No, no, that’s not the point at all:
Government and its regulations exist to defend us from incompetent or bad strangers, not from our mates.
Government is about the exercise of power over others. The expression of the desire to make sure that everyone does as you think they should, not as they would wish.
That’s why this democracy shtick is only the least worst of all the options: because of the lust for power that those who are prepared to stand for election have.
